    Biography:
    • Jacob and Sarah were prominently mentioned in their son, Samuel Nelson Moyers's, biography:

      Among the pioneer settlers of Des Moines county, Iowa, of 1839 we are pleased to record the name of Mr. Moyers, who was born in Greene County, Illinois, January 31, 1827, and is the son of Jacob and Sarah (Rogers) Moyers. The father, who was of German descent, was born in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, in 1797, and the mother, who was of Scottish parentage, was a native of Kentucky. In 1804 when only nine years of age, Jacob Moyers went with his brother and sister to Cincinnati, Ohio, in which vicinity he worked as a farm hand until 1826. He was married in 1818 to Sarah Rogers, who was born March 16, 1802. Eight years later the young couple emigrated to Greene County, Illinois, where the husband purchased eighty acres of raw land, which he greatly improved during his residence there. Again taking up the march of westward progress, in 1839 the family came to Des Moines County, locating in Burlington Township, where Mr. Moyers purchased 160 acres of land, and there lived until his death, which occurred June 13, 1863. His wife survived him for four years, when she too was summoned to the unknown world, her death occurring September 16, 1867. They were both devoted members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He served as a soldier in the Black Hawk War. This worthy couple reared a family of nine children: Eliza Ann, wife of J. Lacons (sic: Lakins) of Carrollton, Illinois; Joel who died at the age of eighteen years; John W. who was fifteen years of age at the time of his death; Samuel,our subject; Andrew Jackson died March 30, 1862, at the age of thirty-two years; Susan Jane, wife of James Rexroat of Macomb, Illinois; George W. a resident of Des Moines County, Iowa; B. Franklin who is now residing in Southwestern Missouri; and J. Josiah, living now in Illinois. [... see remainder under Samuel Nelson Moyer's file ...]
